While increasing rigor, these activities will also increase content learning as students are deeply engaged in and enjoying “mathematical play”. As a playground has many benefits for children and adults beyond the mere fun of playing on the equipment itself, engaging in the various forms of “mathematical play” has many additional benefits for students and teachers. Indeed, you will find that the word “play” throughout this book.

"Play is the highest form of research." Albert Einstein

Playgrounds help children develop muscles and coordination, build self-confidence, and learn how to cooperatively play with other children. Playgrounds also give parents the chance to supervise their children as they become more independent, yet still needing that developmental boost on a jungle gym or playground swing.

Enjoy playing with the problems and strategies in this book……
